  • Mavericks' Dirk Nowitzki: Sheds walking boot
    By RotoWire Staff

    Nowitzki (ankle) is out of his walking boot, Dwain Price of Mavs.com reports. According to Nowitzki, "I've been doing more and more every week, I'm getting the hydro work starting next week and maybe moving a little bit in there in the pool. I've been slowly stepping it up in the weight room lifting some legs, lifting some upper body. I'm starting to do a little cardio (and) I started to walk on the treadmill a little bit." Nowitzki continues to progress as expected and should be ready to continue full basketball activity before training camp begins. He'll be turning 40 in June and will be entering his 21st NBA season. During the 2017-18 campaign, he averaged 12.0 points, 5.7 rebounds and 1.8 threes across 24.7 minutes per game.

  • Nowitzki said Sunday that he's progressing as expected from the minor ankle procedure he underwent on his left ankle April 5, Eddie Sefko of The Dallas Morning News reports. Nowitzki has resumed walking without the assistance of crutches but will need to wear a walking boot for the next two weeks before he's able to remove it and engage in more intense workouts. The veteran big man, who will turn 40 in June, should be back to full strength well before training camp in the fall as he prepares for his 21st -- and likely final -- NBA campaign. Nowitzki suited up in 77 contests during the 2017-18 season, finishing with 12.0 points (on 45.6 percent shooting from the field), 5.7 rebounds, 1.8 three-pointers and 1.6 assists in 24.7 minutes per game. He should retain a regular spot in the starting lineup next season, but will likely see his playing time take a hit for the third year in a row.

  • Nowitzki said Tuesday that he plans to return to the Mavericks next season, Eddie Sefko of the Dallas Morning News reports. Nowitzki's season came to an end last week after he underwent minor surgery on his left ankle, but he told reporters Tuesday that he opted to get the surgery in order to be back to full strength in 2018-19. Nowitzki will turn 40 in June, and the Mavs hold a $5 million club option for next season, which they'll likely exercise. Nowitzki started 77 games for the Mavs this season, averaging 24.7 minutes per game, which he translated to 12.0 points, 5.7 rebounds and 1.6 assists. Assuming the Mavs make some roster improvements over the summer and return to competing for a playoff spot, Nowitzki would likely take on a lesser role in 2018-19.

  • Nowitzki (ankle) will undergo minor surgery and miss the final three games of the season, Eddie Sefko of The Dallas Morning News reports. Nowitzki had already been ruled out for the Mavericks' final two road games Friday and Sunday, so it looks like the veteran was already trending towards being done for the year. Fortunately, according to the report, the surgery Nowitzki is set to undergo is not very serious and is not expected to have an impact on the big man's decision for the 2018-19 season. In Nowitzki's absence for the final three games, rookie Jonathan Motley, who played 41 minutes Wednesday, could continue to get some additional minutes, but both Harrison Barnes (rest) and Dwight Powell (knee) are expected to return as the team's starting frontcourt for the final stretch.

  • Mavericks head coach Rick Carlisle acknowledged following Wednesday's 105-100 loss to the Magic that Nowitzki (ankle) won't join the team for games Friday in Detroit and Sunday in Philadephia, Dwain Price of the Mavericks' official site reports. "[Nowitzki is] obviously not on the trip," Carlisle said. "There will be more information [Thursday]. That's really all I'm authorized to say at this point." Nowitzki missed just his second game of the season Wednesday due to a left ankle impingement, and it appears the issue is significant enough to keep him unavailable for the Mavericks' final two road contests. At this point, the only question that remains regarding Nowitzki's status for the rest of the season is whether or not he'll suit up in the team's finale Tuesday in Dallas against the Suns. While Nowitzki, Nerlens Noel (suspension), Harrison Barnes (rest) and Dwight Powell (knee) were all sidelined Wednesday and Salah Mejri was limited to just one minute due to a knee injury, Johnathan Motley (41 minutes) and Dorian Finney-Smith (35 minutes) received by far their largest workloads of the season. Powell and Barnes should at least be back for Friday's game, which should offer some reinforcement to the frontcourt.
